Telemundo’s La Casa de los Famosos is ready to welcome some of the biggest Latin stars as they join the highly-anticipated new season slated to premiere live on Tuesday, May 10 at 7pm/6c. The primetime reality competition returns with an all-new group of iconic personalities set to deliver episodes full of drama as they live together under the same roof, in total isolation from the outside world, with their every move being recorded 24 hours a day. The famous and controversial Niurka Marcos is the first personality to join the new season that invites audiences into the house through a live multiplatform experience on both linear and digital via the exclusive 24/7 access on Telemundo.com.
“La Casa de los Famosos will be bigger than ever in this upcoming new edition with a cast that will surely impress,” said Ronald Day, President, Entertainment and Content, Telemundo. “As we unveil this new season, audiences will once again enjoy an extensive multiplatform experience, from our live daily broadcasts to the 24/7 live online stream that capture the intense drama, suspense and surprises surrounding these celebrities in their search for the grand cash prize.”
La Casa de los Famosos, produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog, a division of Banijay, opens a window into celebrities’ most intimate moments, offering viewers an unfiltered and unparalleled multiplatform experience via linear and 24/7 exclusive access via a streaming feed on Telemundo.com. With more than 50 hidden cameras and 60 microphones, their moves will be captured every moment of the day, while they eat, sleep, share bathrooms, have intimate conversations, and face house tasks, nomination challenges, and eviction ceremonies. Viewers can witness the dynamic alliances, rivalries, and romances that develop as these personalities compete to bring home the cash prize. Each week, the audience will vote to determine which celebrity will leave the house and ultimately decide which housemate will be crowned the winner at the end of the competition.
